Bones

The Movie in the Making - S11-E18

New this month Character mistake: Near the start Bones calls Dr. Vasiri, Dr. Resedi. This is a mistake as she has worked with Dr. Vasiri for a number of years and never calls him Dr. Resedi.

The Head in the Abutment - S11-E19

New this month Character mistake: Hodgins flies a decapitated human head via drone all the way from the crime scene to the Jeffersonian. A distance of several miles over city and urban landscapes. This would comprise all the evidence and be a massive risk to public health. Dr. Hodgins would know how much it would mess up the evidence since his area of expertise is particulates, and insects, both of which would be compromised.

The Man in the Fallout Shelter - S1-E9

Character mistake: Hodgins is talking to Bones and says something about Goodman not being able to see his family and Zach not being able to see his kids. Goodman has kids, Zach was going to visit his family, not the other way around.

The Man with the Bone - S1-E18

Character mistake: The finger bone found in the dead man's hand was said to come from somewhere near Assateague Island, to which Hodgins replies, "That's where the money pit is." The "Money Pit" is actually located on Oak Island in Nova Scotia, not on Assateague Island, in Maryland/Virginia. He also says that they dug it out to about 150 feet, which is also incorrect. The 1971 Triton excavation was able to dig a shaft to a depth of 235 feet. What is said to be on Assateague island is the legendary lost Spanish galleon La Galga, not the Money Pit.

The Hero in the Hold - S4-E14

Character mistake: When Booth is locked in the ship, his "hallucination" asks Booth why he never bothered to learn some lock picking skills. However, in the episode "Judas on a Pole," Bones tells Booth that she's been practicing some lock picking skills that Booth taught her.

The Dwarf in the Dirt - S5-E7

Character mistake: Episode 5.07, "Dwarf in the Dirt" - Over lunch with Doctor/Chef Gordon Wyatt, Angela says he'd have to dislocate his jaw like "an articulated python" in order to bite into his sandwich. The snake is actually called a reticulated python.

The Predator in the Pool - S5-E18

Character mistake: When Bones and Dr Hodgins, who is proclaimed as a seasoned diver in a previous episode, are in the tank, Bones gives an instruction and Hodgins replies with a thumbs up. Since Bones is diving as well, they both would know from certification (without which neither would be allowed to dive in the facility) classes that a thumbs up is the hand signal for "I'm ascending", not OK or any form of acknowledgement. They either are not certified divers or they should have immediately surfaced.

The Rocker in the Rinse Cycle - S5-E19

Character mistake: When Booth mentions the 2007 Led Zeppelin concert in London, he comments that they toured that year. That Zeppelin concert was not part of a tour, but just a one-off reunion to honor the memory of late Atlantic Records executive Ahmet Ertegun.

The Beaver in the Otter - S4-E24

Character mistake: About half way through the episode, there is a computer screen with "Chemsitry" on it - a spelling error that should not have made it past editing.

The Pain in the Heart - S3-E15

Character mistake: Zach, from his hospital bed, says he used 3 grams of the monomer to make the explosion. 3 grams of a powder would be a very small amount; less than a teaspoonful. But when he actually did use it, he took a loose amount in a large tablespoon. Zach would have carefully measured it in order to be precise; but he did not. So this is a factual error in what he says; it is also a character mistake in that Zach is the personification of technical accuracy, and would never take a casual spoonful - especially of an explosive.

The Blonde in the Game - S2-E4

Character mistake: In season 2, episode 4, when they find the girl buried under the cross, you can see her face, which means she was on her back, because her neck couldn't possibly bend that far around without it being noted by Dr. Brennan later in the episode (which it isn't). Later in the episode, however, Special Agent Booth tells Epps' wife that she was found buried face down.

Mistakes

The Roswell, New Mexico sheriff forces Bones to examine the body because it was found in his jurisdiction. But later in the episode, we learn that the body was found 2 kilometers from the border of Mexico. Roswell is not even in a county on the border of New Mexico much less one that borders Mexico. In fact the closest border to Roswell between the US and Mexico would be in Texas - hours drive away. The Roswell sheriff would have no jurisdiction.

Trivia

At around 5 mins 11 seconds into the episode, Vincent Nigel-Murrey and Dr. Saroyan are discussing the bones on the forensic platform. In the background of a shot of Vincent, the x-ray on the screen is of Homer Simpson's head in the middle of the screen, instead of a real human skull.
